Gothic Wallflower | Before and After

The before and after editing Gothic Wallflower.

Another example of how sometimes the magic lies in the editing process.

The ring light was used as the key light, and an off-camera flash with a red (diy) gel stood off to the right.  The gelled flash was a bit too far forward, and therefore cast red over more of the face than hoped for.

The lighting and red cast was adjusted in PS, and still left a subtle ‘wrapped color’ that had been originally intended.

Let’s keep learning new techniques, practicing, failing, and trying again.

Although we should try to get the best image out of camera, let’s not be afraid to embrace editing to create magic.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Learning and Failure

Red Dogwood Blossoms

Learning continues as long as we live, and it should!  There is so much to learn; so many books to read, articles to ponder, pursuits to dabble in, skills to build.

Learning goes hand in hand with failure.

With so much to learn and so much growth that’s possible, we can’t be afraid to fail.

Let’s roll up our sleeves and learn, experiment, create, and live without fearing the failure that’s part of the process.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
